In addition to our new franchisees, we are proud to have some of the longest standing franchisees in the industry with many of our franchise business partners celebrating upwards of 10 years with our brand. While we have many successful single store franchisees keen to sink their teeth into owning and managing one location, we also have several franchisees around New Zealand who have developed their own cluster of successful stores. From Auckland to Wellington and down to Dunedin, our multi-site operators have reaped the rewards and benefits of The Coffee Club franchising model.
The Coffee Club’s success
With over 30 years in business, The Coffee Club have developed a model which delivers to the needs of both our franchisees and customers. We are committed to delivering the highest standards of food, beverages and service in a welcoming and relaxed meeting place enriching contemporary lifestyle. The Coffee Club’s unique difference is the full menu offering which sets us apart from our competitors. We are more than just a coffee shop with cabinet food - instead we offer a full menu to our guests available all day every day. To compliment this The Coffee Club provides an upmarket, stylish and welcoming fit-out, ensuring we are always the place to meet.
The Coffee Club has been the recipient of a range of awards at the Westpac NZ Franchise Awards from 2012 through to 2019. In the judges’ opinion, “The Coffee Club is a standout franchise system with outstanding systems and processes combined with the outstanding support they provide to their franchisees. Their clear understanding and professional management of their business has resulted in continued growth since they established the franchise in 2005.”
The Coffee Club franchise system
When you join The Coffee Club, you can be confident you are joining an award-winning New Zealand franchise that is well recognised and respected within the community and a chance to own a piece of strong brand entity. While the main objective is to foster brand growth and integrity, the highest priority is the continued support and commitment to our franchisees. You benefit from being part of a proven business model based on best practice retail hospitality management, backed by an experienced Support Team who are just as dedicated to your business as you are.
To achieve our best practice status in the industry, The Coffee Club created the ‘six building blocks’ which have been carefully developed over 30 years. These building blocks set the business structure to deliver an effective and efficient franchise system. New franchisees are given five weeks of initial training, including hands-on in-store experience and training in each of the key building blocks. You will also receive comprehensive manuals developed by The Coffee Club which cover off each of the building blocks.
Once your store opens, you'll also have a personal Business Development Manager to guide you through your business venture. As both mentor and coach, your Business Development Manager will work with you to develop a business plan to help you achieve growth and success.
